the cia to disrupt an fbi investigation and to lie to the fbi, that the fbi should not look into the sources of funding that was later used by the watergate burglars for national security reasons. don't look into it because it would open a cia operation. it is not true, but the president wanted to use the cia to protect a political shenanigan, a political crime, and use the national security exemption as a cover-up. >> your interview was done in 2008. robert bork was still alive. here he is talking about the smoking gun tape. >> what was your reaction when you heard of the smoking gun tape? >> dismay, but not surprised. >> could you develop that a little? >> i was sorry to see the last nail hammered into the coffin. but i was not so terribly surprised there was a smoking gun. george called me and said, look, we're going into court in about five minutes. i want to tell you that there is an 18 and 1/2 minute gap in the tape. that surprised me and dismayed me. you cannot show up with an 18 1/2 minute gap. that would suspect something. >> how would that affect being on the supre

cheney played in outing valerie plame as the cia officer. patrick fitzgerald, the federal prosecutor, said there is a cloud over him. that's what he said back then. and here is why, according to "time" magazine, quote, though his recollection of other events in the same time frame was lucid and detailed, on at least 20 occasions scooter libby, cheney's chief of staff, could not recall details of his talks with cheney of plame's place of employment or questions the vice president raised privately about wilson's credibility. some bush officials wondered whether libby was covering up for cheney's involvement in the leak of plame's identity. joan, i have to tell you, i respect scooter libby in one regard, loyalty at this. he has kept, and it is a strange loyalty, he has never brought cheney into this thing. cheney has been able to use crocodile tears to pretend he cared about the guy. he referred to him as a soldier left on the field. excuse me, there were 4,000 real soldiers left on the field. >> right. >> somehow he comes off as the sympathetic guy when, in fact, this guy wasn't out ro

by the operational mentality in the cia after being in the building no more than a month. this was an extremely weak national security team. obama also, i think, was rolled by the military, that's how you got to serge of forces. i think he realized he was had by the military, and i think that's important. one of the reasons i'm a little more optimistic about this second term is i think this is a wiser man in terms of foreign policy, and if you look at the fact that he has ended in the war in iraq, he has meandering towards ending the war in afghanistan, he's allowing the pentagon, and you've got to remember when you look at the pentagon, you're looking at an institution that has the fine motor skills of a dinosaur. it takes the pentagon a long time to put together a timetable such as for withdraw. all obama has to do, and i know it's not this simple, but i would look at the experience, came in in 1995, gave the speech in 1996, announcing the bleeding wound, he had nazis tell schulz we were getting out and the military had a year to turn it around, and they wouldn't be able to. 88, they announced the

hearings over c.i.a. nominee john brennan. a war criminal? really? >> i think we have to acknowledge that there are the killing of thousands of people, hundreds of them children that this drone policy is terrorizing entire populations. i was recently in pakistan and saw what it's like for people to be living under drones 24 hours a day and the fear that instills in people and that this has become the best recruiting tool for extremist organizations and is making us less safe here at home. so i think it's important to speak out and call for a change in the policy. >> slow down. wait a second. how is it making us less safe at home to kill people who want to kill us? to kill terrorists? >> we can only identify 2% of the thousands of people we've killed, juan. every time we kill innocent people, we are creating new recruits for al-qaeda. people have told us that in pakistan, they've told us that in yemen. they said every time a drone strikes and kills an innocent person, ten, 20, 30 more people are going to join al-qaeda. now we see al-qaeda spreading not only in yemen, but in northern a

. but in any case, you're not going to have a cia director either until after the recess. >> if chuck hagel ultimately ends up confirmed, and that was part of the white house statement today saying listen, he has majority support, he got 58 votes on the cloture vote today, which implies he is going to be confirmed, if they ever allow a vote. once we get defense secretary chuck hagel, what does what we just went through mean for what the relationship's going to be like between congress and the pentagon? congress and the pentagon are a little bit at each other's throats right now anyway because of the negotiations around the sequester and how the pentagon budget is going to proceed not only over this next year but over the next few years. what's it going to mean between congress and the pentagon once chuck hagel's in charge after they made him go through this? >> well, if the president thought that by having a republican in the cabinet at the pentagon he was going to buy any kind of loyalty or relationship with republican senators, he can think again about that. because this simply isn't happ

operations but are not involved in combat. so the people sit down like at c.i.a. headquarters or in the pentagon with the joystick, killing targets overseas, qualify for a medal of honor. >> really surreal world. >> bill: it is isn't it? >> the air force has these bases in colorado are like a field of trailers or container -- boxes. and these guys, they have normal lives with wives and kids at home and they drive in the office and get in one of the bunkers, sit behind a computer and spy on them and sometimes kill people in the tribal areas of pakistan or afghanistan. it is a really bizarre situation. >> bill: then go home and barbecue chicken for the kids. >> there is a situation comedy brewing in there somewhere. a tv show. >> bill: how did it go at the office today hon? well, i killed five. no. it really troubles me. so many aspects of it. we've talked a lot about president obama's state of the union. i want to get to that with you. and about marco rubio's response, particularly the water bottle. nobody is talking about poor rand paul. there was a third state of the union, r

at the cia. jack lew is undergoing questioning now and getting roughed up a bit. and right now his nomination may or may not be held up. what's the republican end game here? it's just not good for the national party brand. >> no, i don't think it is good, joe. and you've seen all this up close before. i think this is just a moment of leverage here. i mean, look. the president's got leverage on his domestic agenda right now. he's used his leverage after the election on taxes. you know, this is some leverage that republicans have to get some questions answered, to send some messages, to fire some shots across the bow. they're doing that. the white house is listening, by the way. it's mostly vice president biden who's talking to some of these more recalcitrant republicans and making sure they get what they need so they can get some of this stuff behind them. issues like benghazi. you know, i don't think there's any real issue with lew. as you know on the brennan matter, i mean, rand paul is kind of off in his own silo, if you will. i don't think he's got a great deal of support, you know, in ter
